I want to get only the first item from the SearchCriteriaBuilder result is there any method that gives direct first item? currently using getList()->getItems() then for loop forget single item.... so I just want to know is there any shortcut method which gives the first record.....

class Promo extends \Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template{
    protected $sales_rule;
    protected $search_builder;
    public function __construct(Template\Context $context,\Magento\SalesRule\Api\RuleRepositoryInterface $sales_rule,\Magento\Framework\Api\SearchCriteriaBuilder $search_builder,array $data = array()){
        parent::__construct($context, $data);
    public function getPromoDetail(){
        $searchCriteria = $this->search_builder->addFilter('is_active',1,'eq')->addFilter('is_popup_rule',1,'eq')->create();
        $items = $this->sales_rule->getList($searchCriteria);
        foreach ($items->getItems() as $value) {
        return $sales_rule[0]    ;

Try this way:

$searchCriteria = $searchCriteriaBuilder->create();

$productList = $this->productRepository->getList($searchCriteria);
$item = current($productList->getItems());

I think you can use reset function

$searchResults = $this->sales_rule->getList($searchCriteria)->getItems();
$firstItem = reset($searchResults);
